Eugenio Barba is one of Europe's leading theatre directors, at the forefront of experimental and group theatre for more than twenty years. Ian Watson provides the most comprehensive and systematic study of Barba's work, including his training methods, dramaturgy, productions and theories, as well as his work at the International School of Theatre Anthropology.


`Ian Watson has written this study `from the inside', having spent several years with Barba and the Odin company. Ian Watson uncovers the secrets, and in so doing has to face up to the criticisms that have sometimes been made of Barba's methods. This he does with great honesty and scholarly integrity, confirming our sense of Barba's importance for contemporary performance research.' - Theatre Reserch Intl
